    Inspirational!

    I loved this book so much that I finished it in the same day that I got it. I laughed, I cried, I re-assessed my life and when I was all finished with it, I prayed for the first time in a long time. I absolutely recommend this book. Especially for those who feel lost in life.

    Still a Fan After 21 Years!

    When I was 16, I was a proud card-carrying member of the Kirk Cameron fan club. I couldn't get enough of GROWING PAINS and all of those teen magazines that plastered Kirk's pictures on almost every page. What I would have really loved, though, was to have heard Kirk (or any other teen idol, for that matter) talk about being a Christian. It would have made me feel like I had at least one thing in common with Hollywood. Well, I now know that Kirk didn't mention it in those magazines because in GROWING PAIN's beginnings, he wasn't a believer. But boy, did things ever change for him! After reading STILL GROWING, at the age of 37, I've realized that Kirk and I have a lot of things in common: a loving devotion to our families, a respect for others, a good sense of humor, and most importantly, a love for Christ.

    Kirk Cameron did an excellent job on writing about his life, telling you his ups and down and finally when he got saved and became a Born again Christian. I highly recommend this book.

    I Also Recommend:

    Kirk Cameron's truthfulness about his life before coming to the Lord, and after.

    Kirk Cameron's story of his childhood and as a child actor in commercials is detailed this autobiography. I admire him and his wife, Chelsea Noble, so much for their devotion to each other and the stand they make in Hollywood regarding their faith.<BR/><BR/>If you don't know anything about Kirk, this book is for you.

    Kirk Cameron is a pretty famous actor, even though he hasn't don

    Kirk Cameron is a pretty famous actor, even though he hasn't done a ton of recent mainstream work.  Recently he is known for his activism in regards to his faith and the few controversies around his actions he has taken in defense of his faith.  I was excited to read this book and read his story before Growing Pains and his most recent moments.

    I grew up on Growing Pains and remember hearing a few of the dramatic behind the scenes stories, so to hear his side of the story was interesting.  The reader must realize that this is only one side of the whole story.  As I see Kirk Cameron as this perfect Christian, it was interesting to read about his childhood and it humanized him a little.

    Although I still think he is very extreme and polarizing, I enjoyed this one.

    Meh.

    Oh, you actually expected me to read this before posting? My bad. It just seemed like you were supposed to rate it before you read it from the editorials on Christopher Hitchens' books...
